Laptop not turning on.

My laptop was running on low battery with the low battery signal and then it suddenly shut down. I then plugged the charger in and it turned on for a second then automatically shut down again. Now i cant turn it on at all, and when i plug in the charger, the green charging light doesn't show or anything.
Someone please help!

Sounds like your cord is not properly plugged into your computer but it could be a battery problem.

You can tell if the problem is your battery by taking out the battery and plugging in the computer to a power outlet. It should boot up if its plugged into the wall, even without the battery.

If it works without the battery in it, then shut it down and try again with the battery in and the power cord plugged in.

Tell us what happens

Try taking out the battery, leave the AC power unplugged, hold down the power button for 30 seconds, plug in the AC power and test, put the battery back in....
